The Vintage Cookie is my creative home, where I record my exploration of design, history, food, and stuff -- from ancient Greece to the Space Age. It is also a chronicle of my entrepreneurial adventures with The Vintage Cookie store and with children's costume manufacturer Lee & Pearl. This is also home to the EARRING PROJECT. In May, 2012 I challenged myself to create and post 365 earring designs in a year -- one for each day. Follow me to join this design adventure.
My sister had the inspiration these earrings - a little girl's Disney Princess charm bracelet sold for $9.95 at the Bibbity Boppity Boutique in FantasyLand at Disneyland.
A few minutes with my trusty pliers and a roll of 20g wire and we have 6 Princesses as earrings. If you don't want to make your own ear wires, you can buy ear wires at Michael's or JoAnns, or your favorite bead store.
My sister and I wore these to Disneyland last evening. She picked the classic pair of Aurora and Cinderella (center top). I chose the re-launch Princesses, Belle (far left) and Jasmine (lower right). We wore them to great effect and many compliments from Cast Members.
